(contains spoilers) The film is an animated film done in a mixed media
style, There are paper cut out characters, some made of cloth and other
The story has Mr Muskrat telling the young Moomin that a comet is going to hit the earth and kill everyone. His father and mother send him on a river trip to an observatory to talk to the astronomers who hopefully will tell him everything will be okay. Well after many adventures they get to the observatory they find out the comet is coming so they head home so they can be here when it hits. On the way back they see some of the devastation the comet is causing, the sea has dried up, and the locusts are swarming. Will they make it home in time? The film is probably darker than it sounds.
It also just sort of stops. The danger is done, roll end credits.
I liked the voice cast which includes Max Von Sydow as the narrator(who wouldn't want him to read you a story), Stellan Skarsgard and Mads Mikkelsen. They manage to make it all okay even when you think about it it's really not.
I'm told this is based on one of the earlier Moomins stories so it's not as moody as some of the later ones. If this isn't moody I don't know what is.
Realesaed in 3D I'm not really sure why. Yes it's nice to see the layers of the animated material, but at the same time the film doesn't scream out 3D.
